    Default Unsafe at work nhs

    I work at a small out patients building on the outskirts of a small town completely isolated from the main nhs hospital in a nearby town
    We at present have travellers on the land outside the car park entrance
    When we finish at 18 : 00 hrs they are normally drunk and acting in an aggressive manner kicking and goading there dogs into fighting each other
    This evening I had to return to the building and wait until others went home so as we could escort each other out ( we have no security)
    I have expressed my concerns with our line manager but she seems lost as what to do
    I believe that I have a right to withdraw to a place of safety without redress
    It is very intimidating with them coming into the building using the showers and toilets our staffing consists of mainly women

    Hi. That sounds tough.

    Are you and your colleagues in a union? They should be able to help.



    If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

    Illegitimi non carborundum.

    Has your manager spoken to the police? They have a specific team for working with travellers.

    Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

    so I would start off with demanding some sort of entry control that would stop them from just walking in and using the facilities. You should also look at the lone working policy and if there is anything in there that applies force your employer to abide by that policy and if that means no-one works there alone then the place is shut or they make suitable adjustments to the working day.

    Security were going to come over from the main nhs hospital but apparently their not insured so they didn't come
    Door entry control is a good idea that I will suggest

    dont suggest, demand. That is why i say what is in the lone working policy, you may have the right to refuse to be there alone without extra kit to help protect you
